Memorial Day pledge: No more war

© Janossygergely |

We set aside this day every year to honor and remember the people who have died in war. From time to time someone points out that the best way to honor war dead is to work to ensure there is no war.

But war goes on, and perhaps it always will as long as we turn for leadership to disturbed people who would violently take land from and kill those they perceive as enemies.

Life is a precious gift, too precious to leave in the hands of death merchants. To honor the victims of war, may we raise a chorus of “Never again. May we resolve our future differences in peace.”
